My husband and I stayed at Piper's cottage for our wedding anniversary, and loved it. The weather was beautiful and we really enjoyed the grounds with the fire pit, bbq and tyre swing! The cottage has everything you need and the open fire is wonderful and cosy. The hot tub was welcomed after mountain biking at Laggan Wolftrax, which is literally 5mins in the car from the cottage. The location is beautiful, and the privacy perfect. Would definitely return!
We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2017.
The location is stunning and the whole time was fantastic .... fulfilled the doctors orders for a complete chill out and perfect get away.
The hot tub is a fantastic way to feel like you are in a luxury resort but the secluded area and cottage location is ideal.
We will be looking at returning to pipers cottage soon
Have visited this lovely cottage twice in the last two years, it is located in very remote and beautiful surroundings and makes for the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
Firstly, the owner is extremely helpful and efficient in responding to queries.
The small cottage has a log-fire that warms the entire downstairs of the property however it appears that it is your luck whether the property is stocked fully with logs, fire-starters, matches and kindling - there is a small supermarket not far away for supplies.
There are extremely steep stairs within the property and as previously noted, those with mobility issues may struggle to ascend/descend them. Similarly they may not be suitable for having children around.
The highlight of the property is the hot tub and the mounted TV within the small cabin next to the property - very easy to start/set up and it is the perfect way to enjoy your beautiful surroundings.
There are many great activities surrounding the cottage only a reasonable drive away, similarly there are restaurants, pubs and cafes in the surrounding areas.
The property is well furnished with wifi, a well-stocked kitchen and plenty of DVD's, tv channels and games should you no longer be exploring the outside!
This is a lovely little cottage located in beautiful surroundings which is perfect for couples wishing a romantic break.
The log fire and hot tub were just what we wanted and the cottage provides a perfect base for road trips to places further afield (such as Aviemore, Inverness or Fort William). There is Sky, wifi, dvds and some games to keep you entertained by the fire. As an unexpected bonus there is also a tv in the summer house and there is a BBQ if you get the weather for it. The cottage is situated just off the main road however given it's location you would not know the road was there and we never heard any traffic.
The cottage is well furnished and the kitchen is perfect for what you need for a your stay. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the various towns nearby if you fancy eating out. I would suggest calling before you decide to go though as my girlfriend and I went out on Sunday afternoon to find the first 2 places we wanted to try were both shut despite being advised online that they should be open.
As with others who have reviewed the property I can confirm that the steps to the bedroom are quite steep and consequently may not be suitable for those with mobility issues or young children. As you might expect from the pictures there is a bit of a height issue in the bedrooms and bathroom so you do need to watch how you get in an out of the beds.
I emailed the owner with a number of queries in the run up to my stay and he was very helpful and responded very quickly.
I would definitely recommend the property and hope that we will get the chance to come back again.
Stayed at the lovely and secluded Piper’s Cottage for 4 nights with my boyfriend and we absolutely loved it! Really cosy and just the right size for us. Fully equipped kitchen meant we could make dinner every night and eat in front of the open fire in the living area (fold away table also provided which was a lovely bonus!). The Hot Tub was amazing to say the least and such a luxury to have! Decent location with only a 30 min drive to Aviemore where there’s lots to do and see. Only thing I would say is that it may be difficult for people with any mobility issues to go up and down the stairs to the bedroom as they are a bit steep, but there is a sofa bed downstairs as an alternative. Great facilities overall and would definitely recommend! Thank you for our stay!
Had a fantastic 3 night break with my partner for my birthday, cottage is well equipped and decorated lovely, bed is slightly on the hard side for us but we’re fussy buggers. As stated in other reviews the stairs are rather steep but going down backwards made it so much easier. The beams in the shower are quite low, my partner who’s 6ft 2 had a bit of a sore head after jumping into the shower too quickly and banging his head on it, think the cottage would benefit from having the bath removed and just a shower cubicle in place of it as you can’t fill the bath from the water tank anyway. Hot tub was absolutely bliss after a day out exploring. Driveway could be doing with being filled in again as one side is really badly eroded but still managed to get in and out with our wee fiesta. Overall an amazing weekend.
We Stayed for 2 nights in this fantastically peaceful cottage. We loved the garden and real fire place but most especially, the Hot Tub. The kitchen is well equipped and beds were comfortable. It was the perfect place for a little get away and just a short drive to Avimore. Can't wait to go back again.
